The Holidays are here and last week Re-Logic released their Winter Wonderland update to Terraria! With it comes a wealth of bug fixes, a few new NPC’s, and my favorite additions, the snow biome and new blocks! The new update comes packed with snow, snow bricks, red candy cane blocks, and green candy cane blocks. That is a lot of new building material!

These new bricks and blocks can only be good news for map builders. Have a mountain in your adventure map? Well, why not top it with snow! It will even start snowing if you place enough snow blocks. From some preliminary testing it seems that you can get some really light snow with as little as 20-30 snow blocks. To get it to really snow, you need a good 250 or more blocks. Do not mistake snow bricks for ordinary white bricks. Placing them will also cause it to snow. However, the green and red candy cane blocks do not spawn snow when placed.


Another nice addition to the snowy biome is the snow covered trees. Just like regular trees, you can plant an acorn in snow and sooner or later you will have a snow covered tree. Another neat addition is the Santa NPC that will move in with you after defeating the Frost Legion. New lighting materials have also been added. The red, blue, and green lights sold by the Santa NPC offer some nice festive decorations to the mix, but don’t count on these lights being your primary source of light, as they only have a faint glow to them. If you string them up around a well-lit base for example, you won’t notice their brightness at all. Stock up on the new lights now, according to the official Terraria Wiki, Santa and presents will be phased out after December 31st....
